The Mobile World Congress (MWC) is still on and today, LG has successfully co-demonstrated the TD-LTE (Time Division-Long Term Evolution) service at the event in partnership with the world’s largest mobile operator, China Mobile.
If you are still not aware, TD-LTE is a telecommunications technology for 4G LTE networks that differs from the widely adopted Frequency Division-LTE (FD-LTE) technology and China Mobile plans to roll out the TD-LTE network in the second half of the year. LG went on to demonstrate the network using a modified LG Optimus G smartphone.
Once China Mobile rolls out the TD-LTE service later this year, LG will go on to roll-out smartphones capable of TD-LTE in China.
Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications said, “TD-LTE has the potential to cover 2.7 billion people in Asia alone and today’s demonstration proves that this technology is ready for consumers. LG is committed to offering a range of TD-LTE smartphones based on our unrivalled leadership in 4G LTE technologies.”
